Founded in 2019, interrupted by the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, RSBF roared back in 2021 with a unique and fun outdoor day of books and animals. A partnership between Anthology, Inc. and the Great Spirit Animal Sanctuary, the Festival is a held on the grounds of the GSAS each September.
Working as both a fundraiser and an opportunity to create awareness foranimals that are neglected and abused, the Roadside Book Festival also opens up Northeast Arizona for readers and book lovers to discover new authors and find great new books.
